Workshop: increasing confidence in New Approach Methodologies for regulatory decision-making

Wednesday 23–Thursday 24 February

In collaboration with the British Toxicology Society and the Health and Safety Executive’s Chemicals Regulation Division, the NC3Rs is hosting a two-day virtual workshop to raise awareness of new approach methodologies (NAMs). The workshop will explore how regulatory application and acceptance of these tools can be increased by overcoming the most significant barriers to their implementation. It will be relevant for academic, regulatory and industry scientists with an interest in the development and application of NAMs.
